Actio.Ventures® was also founded to promote intra-entrepreneurship
In addition to accelerating external projects, Actio.Ventures also focuses on fostering intrapreneurship. For this reason, it will also operate as an accelerator of projects promoted by members of its team. Some examples are Actio.Haus with the objective of becoming a venue for acceleration and incubation of startups and technological disruption projects; Gembawall, an OKR-based tool that guides companies in translating strategy both into execution and systemic innovation, its prototype version already applied by large companies such as Unilever, Adevinta, Bolton, Chiesi or Angelini; Actio. Design, a platform that brings the methods used by ActioGlobal in enterprises closer to any user, or Inn-Be striving for excellence in education by integrating ActioGlobal’s methods of innovation, learning and collaboration used in leading companies into schools and universities.
As venture builder of the projects emerging from the ActioGlobal® team, Actio.Ventures® is currently committed to investing in and developing Actio.Design, Inn-Be, GembaWall® and Actio.Haus. The latter project strives to become a venue for acceleration and incubation of startups and technological disruption projects, providing infrastructure, community, knowledge and mentoring for their growth.
Actio.Ventures is also developing GembaWall®, a tool that integrates OKR, Agile and Lean Startup to translate strategy both into execution and systemic innovation, which in its MVP version is already applied by large companies such as Unilever, Danone, Adevinta, Angelini, Bolton Food, Bancolombia Panama in more than 30 different countries.
Actio.Ventures thus takes on the role of a catalyst for entrepreneurial activity, both internally and externally, leveraging its experience in transforming exponentially growing companies and organizations, as well as its knowledge of the future of work, New Work and digital technologies.
According to the Actio.Ventures® team’s own words, the new VC pursues the following objectives:
2. Be close to the startups to continue to create disruption within large companies, revolutionizing their way of thinking, experimenting and making an impact at high speed, always focusing on the customer, the user, the consumer and society.
3. Help the startups in which we invest to develop ways of working and cultures enabling them to grow sustainably in order to make a significant impact.
4. Investing in projects, inside and outside the large corporation, that redefine the established norms of sectors and industries, that disrupt traditional ways of thinking and working to the benefit of all, creating solutions that have not existed before or were in place without having a positive impact.
5. Expedite ideas and initiatives that emerge from the creativity of the ActioGlobal team and that respond to needs identified in their daily interaction with leaders of top organizations all around the world.
